What are WWE stars real names? Mark Callaway, Paul Levesque and Saraya-Jade Bevis’s aliases revealed

WWE stars are often mysterious characters - both in and out of the ring.

Wrestlers often go by a number of aliases throughout their careers, some changing them after joining Vince McMahon's promotion from the independent circuit.

Others will stick with what they are given at birth, such as Randy Orton, who bares the family name of his icon dad and generations before that.

Many will completely take on a new character, Triple H for example is actually called Paul Michael Levesque.
